Anonymous said: Hi! Ok, so this is the best possible place I can get a likely answer, and it's super obscure, but TMF once had recommended a fic that was Pezberry, that had a similar theme to ECFC. I remember her mentioning how it was like ECFC but done in a much more condensed, yet refined version. Do you by chance know this fic? Thank you for your help, I appreciate it!
Alright, so I kind of remember what you are talking about, but I’m not sure exactly what story she was referring to. I want to say that she was talking about The Mating Game, but I only half-paid attention to Pezberry stuff back then so, that’s iffy.
Does anyone else have a clearer memory?
Eights and Tens blog-only excerpts?
Now that the published full chapters 1-11 are gathered (yay!), does anyone happen to have any of the brief posts that TMF posted on tumblr from future chapters? Especially the body swap episode and part where Claire admits that kissing Nicole in Jackson’s body is way hotter than just kissing Jackson, and that kissing Jackson in Nicole’s body is, like, heaven….
Yes, these. Does anyone have these?
I don’t suppose you have any leads on chapter 10 of Eights and Tens do you? It’s killing my perfectionist side having 1-9 and 11 but not 10.
Nope. I never have any leads on anything. Things just appear in my email or inbox, and then I put them in the dropbox.
With that said, I totally understand the annoyance in not having Chapter 10, and I am sure others do too. Maybe someone in the vast world of the Internet can help us out?
aurora771 said: Finished reading AoCC for the 4th time. Pains me how there will never be an ending. I used to come home from work to read the chapters of AoCC, when they were updated daily. I'm also annoyed at myself for not saving excerpts from tmf's tumblr about Quinn and Finn after they swapped back. I have about 30 or 40 deadlinks of various excerpts/oneshots. Useless now... Anyway, just the way things are :)
I know, right? That universe was so expansive and detailed, and despite having a good chunk of AoCC, I really think we only have a fraction of what TMF had developed—including but certainly not limited to the stuff she had published through her tumblr.
It’s funny though. The one thing I’ve learned through running this blog is that TMF’s work could be anywhere. Eventually someone who reads this very post may have actually saved all of those excerpts and oneshots, and eventually they may shoot me an email or an ask with download links. I mean, it’s happened on more than one occasion with other works—why not AoCC?
In the meantime…I know those feels, bro.

There’s 100 of you.
This is just insane.
I know I haven’t been on much and all that, but my goodness you guys. I find it so cool that a fanblog to a fic writer could get 100 followers. It really is just a testament to TMF’s abilities and works.
I want to thank everyone who has contributed so far to the content of this blog! It would honestly be nothing without all of you!
I want to encourage all of you (whether you have contributed before or not) to post something! I don’t care if it’s fan art or fanmixes—or even simply puking all of your TMF feels into the submit box. Just go!
Again, this is crazy. You guys are awesome.
How bad, really, is the loss of TMF to the fandom?
I suspect it’s increasingly hard for any Glee fanfic writer to continue to write — I definitely have no motivation to continue/ complete my half-finished ideas. If you extend that thought, it’s unlikely that TMF, having broken away so neatly, will ever write Glee fanfic again — and that is an extremely depressing idea to digest.
I’ve been trying to put this in perspective after a re-reading marathon which included a week of just reading ECFC over and over again…
I guess it’s not as bad as Achele being the broke-ass non-event that it turned out to be (but not by much).
Definitely much worse than Glee turning into what it has — well turned into (which is, well, shit).
I think it says a lot when a single fanfic writer is — by miles — far more important than the entire fucking show…
